Operation Taboo

Here's the game: The truth is there: The president knew that an attack was coming inside the United States. Everyone on the 911 commission knows he knows.

The problem is that members of the Administration have denied that this was true countless times.

Now the national security advisor has to testify under oath.

What do you do?

It's simple: Prohibit people from uttering the magic phrase. The bottom line of Condi Rice's testimony is that they attempted to snow the American people, but a clever lawyer, Richard Ben Veniste, forced the National Security Advisor to mention the prohibited magic phrase.

" Bin Laden Determined To Attack Inside The United States"

This is the title of the President's Daily Briefing on August 6th.

Let me repeat that.

"Bin Laden Determined To Attack Inside the United States".

This is the title of the President's Daily Briefing on August 6th.

Repeat it. Memorize it. Quote it. If you watched the testimony, you heard it from Condolezza's lips, but the newspapers prefer not to dwell on it.

These should be the words of the president's undoing.

They've stallled, they've lied, and the partisan director of the commission even made it illegal for members of the 911 commission to even mention the name of the document during the hearing.

Explain to me how this can be a legitimate. Members of the commission know the title of the document, but they're prohibited from mentioning it...This isn't a hearing, this is a party game. Try to find the truth without mentioning a taboo phrase. OPERATION TABOO.

How are we supposed to get to the truth?

Don't you get it yet? The commission is a sham. The executive director, Phillip Zeiklow is a neocon loyal to the president, and the committeee is designed to whitewash for the adminstration. The last thing most committee members want to do is present the facts and nothing but.

All the same, the tide is turning. Even though all the cards are stacked against us, what was hidden may yet be revealed.

Case in point: The Drudge Report is a news site that, for the most part, presents information with a bias favorable to the president. Even there, I found this article from newsday.

Our persistance is paying off...What was hidden will be revealed.

"...Condoleezza Rice began her testimony with a statement in which she minimized the possibility that anyone could have known what was happening. All intelligence prior to 9/11 was "not specific as to time, nor place, nor manner of attack," she said. But then 9/11 Commissioner Richard Ben-Veniste pressed her about that PDB memo, still rated as "classified" by the government. Ben-Veniste was legally prohibited from mentioning even the title of the document.

But he wasn't prohibited from asking Rice the title of the PDB. And she obliged: "I believe the title was, 'Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States.'" Ouch. Just moments after she had said intelligence was "not specific" about the place of attack, here's a presidential-level document warning, specifically, that al-Qaida's target wasn't overseas somewhere, but rather the United States itself.

David Colton, Washington lawyer and veteran of the intelligence world, observes of this exchange: "Ben-Veniste hypnotized her." Colton adds, "She fell into the rhythm of a smart lawyer's questions, and so blurted out the single most damning admission of these hearings."

Seeming to realize she had said too much, Rice tried to bury the revelation by piling on words. She insisted that the document, the PDB's title notwithstanding, "did not warn of attacks inside the United States. It was historical information based on old reporting." Whereupon Ben-Veniste invited her to seek the declassification of the entire memo. Rice declined".
